This is my Tree of Life watercolor. It is a work in progress (WIP). My mom had given me all of her watercolor one inch squares the she had left over. I searched around for an idea. I am not a hearts and cats type of girl. I wanted to do something more with my watercolor quilt. I really like this tree. I feel like some of the leaves are falling off and the ground is a little mossy. At my local fabric store you can buy grid material that you can iron on. So once you have your design complete you iron the squares on the grid. Then you just have to fold and sew on the lines. My mom says this is cheating but I say it is evolution. Why should I sew each square to another square when I can sew an entire row all together. This way at least I have a chance of getting straight lines. I still need to decide on a boarder and a backing. And then I need to decide what to do with it. I may keep it or I may give it away to a friend.
I am a full time working mom of twin boys. My passion is my children. My hobby is quilting. This blog is my quilting journal. I love to share my quilts and arts and craft projects with friends and family. After a long hiatus of taking care of twin babies and then running after them as toddlers I finally have the time and energy to quilt again. I love sewing as my sons sit beside me or play near my sewing machine. Who knew boys could be so interested in quilting.
